Parallel Sysplex Aggregation

Sysplex Calculator: Download

Starting on 11 April 2007 IBM has introduced a new method for customers to regsiter for and download the Sysplex Calculator (PlexCalc) tool.

The new method takes advantage of the standard IBM tools downloading process which uses the IBM Registration process many customers have already used to create their personal IBM ID. When selecting the "Download" link below a new browser window will open and take you directly to a sign-in screen entitled "System z Software Licensing Tool Downloads".

After you sign in you will be asked to verify that your personal information (such as email id) has not changed. Scroll down towards the bottom of the page, check the box indicating you agree to the standard license for the Sysplex Calculator (this is a No Charge tool), and click the "I confirm" link. You will then be taken to the Sysplex Calculator download page where you can click the "Download now" button.
